Officially we reach the end of British Summer Time this Sunday the 27th October, which means an extra hour’s sleep, more daylight in the mornings and looking forward to the festive period however it also results in earlier, darker evenings. We have a collection of great value stylish clocks available:
We’ve been changing our clocks forwards and backwards in the UK since 1916. It’s all to do with saving the hours of daylight, and was started by a man called William Willett, a London builder. William Willett first proposed the idea of British Summer Time in 1907 in a pamphlet entitled ‘The Waste of Daylight’. Willett had noticed that the summer mornings light was wasted while people slept, and that the time would be better utilised in the afternoon by putting the clocks forward. After campaigning for years the British Government finally adopted the system a year after Willett’s death.
